Injuries healing for Teaford, Cain

SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Royals left-hander Everett Teaford, slowed by a sore shoulder, is back to throwing and is doing well.

"I threw from 75 feet, and it felt good. I am off today, and then tomorrow I'll throw from maybe 90 feet. You never know what tomorrow will bring," Teaford said Thursday.

"It felt good at 20 throws, at 75 and we're all go," he said.

There was also good news from center fielder Lorenzo Cain, nursing a strained right hand.

"All good," he said.

Cain expects to resume batting practice Saturday and hopes to be game-ready by Monday.
